ACA NEOGEO The King of Fighters ’94 Review

As you can probably tell from the title, this game was released back in 1994 for the ever popular Neo Geo home console, and was an amalgamation of two of SNK’s popular fighting games - Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting. It took characters from these two games, mixed them with a few characters from Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldier, along with some original characters, and created a three on three tag team style game out of it. Initially their idea was to draw fans of each franchise and get them to play KOF, and in that sense at least it was a success, so much so that SNK was able to go on to release games almost yearly right up to KOF 15 in August 2016. So the big question is this: does [...]

ACA NEOGEO Sengoku Review

Nostalgia eh? It’s a funny old thing and make no mistake, it seems that at the moment there is a real fad happening for re-releasing old games on modern generation consoles. By and large this is a good thing. As I referred to in my Metal Slug review, I never had a Neo Geo as a kid, and consequently have never played any of these game that are hitting the store. This time, it is the turn of Sengoku to get the treatment, a game which first released way back in 1991, when this reviewer was a fresh faced 18 year old with the world at his feet. So, 26 years on, has time been kind to Sengoku, or should it have stayed a memory?

88 Heroes Review

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No… It’s Super- wait, no it’s not. It’s Max Velocity! Sound familiar? Didn’t think so. When the best were summoned, only these ragtag bunch of “heroes” stepped up to the pl8 to defeat Dr H8. This is 88 Heroes.

ACA NEOGEO Metal Slug Review

Back in the day, I was never allowed to have a Neo Geo console. The ridiculous cost of the unit itself (£399 at launch, equivalent to £700 now), added to the fact that the games used to regularly retail for over £100 a pop, made my Mum and Dad say "No!" and point out I still had a perfectly good Atari 2600 to play on. Parents eh? I think this is probably why my six year old son has a Wii U, 2DS and various other electronic devices to play with, if you'll forgive the amateur psychology. Anyway, moving on and as a result of this parental decision, I never got to play Metal Slug in the home until now, with the release of ACA NEO GEO Metal Slug for the Xbox One. So, has it been worth the 21 [...]

ACA NEOGEO Neo Turf Masters Review

First released back in 1996, both as an arcade cartridge and a home cartridge on the Neo Geo system, Neo Turf Masters was a fast paced, two player golf game made by Nazca, who are also known for their Metal Slug game. Neo Turf Masters has had a long and storied history, being converted and gracing such consoles as the PS2, Wii and PSP, alongside the well remembered Neo Geo Colour handheld (I personally don't remember this thing!). Finally showing up on the Xbox One, how have the intervening 21 years treated the game, and will it hold up today?

2Dark Review

I’m always sceptical going into ‘Survival Horror’ games because more often than not the emphasis seems to be less on survival and more on either running and hiding, or shooting everything that moves. And while both are options in 2Dark, neither is particularly viable. The game rewards a collected and calculated approach. The horror in the game comes from its themes and their dealing with the dark and abhorrent sides of human nature. Consequently, the survival in question isn’t yours, but that of the children you’re tasked with rescuing.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Review

Bigger is better. That seems to be the motto of most major developers these days, with their open-world extravaganzas such as Watch Dogs 2, Far Cry Primal, The Division, The Witcher 3, Just Cause 3 and many more all hitting the market in recent times, going big to satisfy the masses. You’ll notice publisher Ubisoft have a large involvement in many of the aforementioned titles, and now they want to take Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series to the vast open-world setting too. How do you transfer this long-standing tactical shooter to the open-world successfully? Ubisoft Paris are the people tasked with such a mission in developing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.

LEGO Worlds Review

It wasn’t until I started my latest review that I realised that LEGO has always been a mainstay in my house. I still have the childhood memories of placing bricks in the completely wrong order, yet still being proud of my creation, right through to the early adult stages in which I would be standing on the damn bricks and dropping to the floor whilst looking at what imprint I would be stuck with me for the next few days, after the little ones in the family had left them in unexpected places. Recent years have seen the physical bricks take a leave of absence though, but as my self-confessed gaming addiction became more prominent, it were the LEGO games that took up residence instead.

Dark Arcana: The Carnival Review

I’ve been taken on Slavic adventures, survived Davy Jones’ numerous attacks and have averted mass disaster, all as part of my experiences with Hidden Object point and click games developed by Artifex Mundi, as each one attempts to bring more to the table. This time out, Artifex are porting Dark Arcana: The Carnival, one of their oldest games, to the Xbox One for our detective-like nature to be satisfied. Is the step back in time to a five year old game a step in the right direction?

Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker Review

Generally my girlfriend puts up with my gaming tastes, albeit with a complete lack of interest. When I’m shooting aliens, jumping from beautiful vistas or walking through a ghost house full of horror, she may look up from her book for a second, roll her eyes and be totally unimpressed. So it was with great surprise when she walked in on me as I was taking a computer programmer called Nigel, who like walks in the parks, the interweb and amusing GIFs, on a date in a German restaurant called The Hot Sausage, before asking “What are you doing?”. “It’s Kitty Powers Matchmaker…a dating game”, I replied. Needless to say, I haven’t seen her since.
